Waist Management: Tie One On

Shirt Dress: ASOS | Tassel Tie Belt: B-Low The Belt | Booties: Free People (old, similar here) | Silver Bobby Pins

What do you do when your dress hides your waist? Just tie one on!

I have my fair share of dresses that are quite forgiving when it comes to its fabric fit. There’s nothing I dislike more than feeling suffocated in a dress that forbids you to eat…I don’t have time for such situations. Comfort always wins for me.

However, there are definitely times when I should try to make the dress fit my body a little bit better, because it has the potential to do so. In this case, I go for the addition of a tie-on belt because it allows me to determine how much of a waist I want to define. This also allows me to set my own standards of comfort, whether I’m tightening or loosening it to suit my satisfaction.
